Day 3 of the #MindfulKidsPeaceSummit is here! The theme today is Mindfulness Matters: Tools to De-stress and Cope with Emotions (including yoga, meditation, breathing, and positivity).
The online international Mindful Kids Peace Summit was created by teen Adam Avin for other teens, to be shown in schools across the world as part of the annual curriculum. It focuses on mental health & stopping violence. 50+ experts speak about diversity, inclusion, communication, kindness, anti bullying, peace, mindfulness, positivity, social emotional learning, emotional intelligence, coping with stress, coping with emotions, coping with trauma, self-awareness, self-regulation, self-compassion, positive psychology, interaction with others, & so much more.

Now I spoke with Jessica Morey, of Inward Bound Mindfulness Education (IMBE) which holds retreats for teens and teaches them how to cope and calm.
“There’s so much happening in the world, big issues, so mindfulness & compassion practices can help us build resilience so when things get really tough, we have the internal resources to not freak out. It can help us have enough space to decide a skillful way of responding.”
“Everyone has unique things and struggles, and we’re not so different, so knowing that, we can support each other.”
